Cricket explained and the Hilltribe fund that teaches cricket to underprivileged kids

The Hilltribe Fund works with under-privileged boys and girls trying to give them a better chance of success in life. The hostel is situated in Lamphun, about 25km from Chiang Mai.

The children are from three different hilltribes, Karen, Akha and Hmong, All their educational needs are looked after but the boys and girls are all talented cricketers.

The children practise almost every day with the older boys already training to be coaches. Their dedication is paying off as Lamphun now has successful boys and girls teams and the best players now have the chance to play for Thailand.
